... to transfer at Lille. Not just trains, but entire train stations! It was a 10 minute dash across the streets to jump on the next train. Who needs drugs when you can get that sudden, intense rush of adrenaline that comes from having only minutes to find your next train. What platform? Where is that? Argh! Ha-ha! Today was our day though - smooth sailing from start to finish.
... barges and a container port as well as a few cruisers.
When we moored up at Mons we were helped by an Australian couple David and Melanie. They are originally from Rhodesia and now Australians and live in Perth. They had lived for a time in South Africa, China and Indonesia due to David being a mining engineer. David is now retired so they just bought their ex hire boat 2 weeks ago to travel Europe.
The port of Mons is very similar ...
... driver travelling to UK amongst other places, so his English was very good.
We had a late afternoon snooze (the 2 beers we had must have been strong!!) then back to the club house for a steak dinner meal and some WiFi at €1 per hour.
Isi is now the owner of 3 special beer glasses! John asked for one the first time we went up and later Isi asked before we left for a different one and then ended up with 2! The club house closed at 10 pm ...
... Tonight there were less people there, and there was a piper playing. Being there for three nights has been a great experience.
We looked at doing a couple of tours and decided on the "Over the Top" tours to the Ieper north Salient on Saturday, and the longer tour to Fromelles and Pheasant Wood today. The word Salient has a number of meanings, and one Dutch meaning is a shallow bowl which describes the topography of the area around Ieper.
... and following an artillery barrage, which had lasted for 11 days and had fired 3.5 million shells.
The advance saw the NZ division head straight up the western slope of the ridge, whilst the 3rd division flanked towards the east. It proved to be the easiest advance carried out by Australians and New Zealanders to date, due to the massive explosions and prolonged barrage that destroyed the German front line.
